Have A Blast Making All Natural Rocket Pops

Summer is made for popsicles. Sometimes, only the promise of one, will get my son out of the pool. One of his favorites is the Rocket Pop. Those red, white and blue icy treats are patriotic and look great. Unfortunately, the original version is full of artificial colors and flavors. Fine now and then, but we decided to create an all natural version that is delicious, healthy and great for everyday.

The All Natural Rocket Pop

Materials Needed:


CD Note: This recipe can be made with any yogurt and food coloring. Suggestions above are for an organic and all natural preparation.


  1. Place about 1/2 the organic blueberry yogurt in a small bowl. In a separate bowl, do the same with the strawberry yogurt. Light color, chunk free yogurt mixes easily (we used horizon yogurt tubes.) To make these popsicles all natural, we used India Tree Natural Decorating Colors. India Tree colors are derived from vegetables. These natural food dyes are a bit expensive but last a very long time.
  2. Add a few drops of the India Tree red color to the strawberry yogurt and stir.
  3. Keep adding drops one at a time and stirring until desired color. CD Note: India Tree colors will not achieve a “bright” red, as they are derived from vegetables. India Tree colors do not add any flavor to your food.
  4. Carefully spoon the red strawberry yogurt into the Cuisipro Rocket Pop. Wipe the insides of the pop mold clean with a paper towel so that the red yogurt is only at the bottom of the mold.
  5. Carefully spoon in the vanilla yogurt. Wipe the insides clean above the vanilla layer.
  6. Gently tap the mold a couple of times to settle the layers. Try to make your layers straight.
  7. Add a few drops of the India Tree blue coloring to the blueberry yogurt. Stir and continue to add a few more drops until desired color is achieved.
  8. Add the blue layer. Put the stick in and snap the mold closed.
  9. Freeze for about 4 hours. CD Note: Yogurt pops will be ready within about 2-3 hours while juice pops take up to 4 hours.
  10. When ready to enjoy, squeeze the sides of the popsicle mold while pulling on the base. For easier release, run the frozen pop mold under warm water for about 7-10 seconds before trying to release the popsicles. 

Hot Dish: Make the original version of a Rocket Pop.
CD Ideas: Rocket Pops are a perfect dessert for a patriotic barbeque.

    PC mtinoor has a higher resolution than TV. Try adjusting the zoom on the tv. Most of the LCD tv have VGA input. If ur tv hs vga then use theVGA it gives better quality. (unless ur going to watch a movie)References :
